Granny Nina makes the best Cotechino in the world. One Sunday we went to her house for dinner and got there early enough to help her make it. Whenever we go see her, I always bring my Flip-Pal with me, just in case. The first thing I did was use my Flip-Pal to scan Grandma’s recipe. I then used my smart phone to record Grandma talking about her recipe.
Whenever my family is in the mood for Italian food, I find Granny’s recipe on my tablet, play back the audio from that afternoon and just smile as I make it myself. It feels like she’s right there in my kitchen making it with me.

It was large – 10 x 18″ – so we scanned it in 10 sections and stitched it with Flip-Pal EasyStitch software. She then spoke a note about it for her daddy, who was deployed in Afghanistan.
